Event description

Description

Marisa Futernick - In the run-up to the U.S. Presidential election, Professor Iwan Morgan and artist Marisa J. Futernick discuss the role of personal narrative, biography, and place in the American Presidency. This event coincides with the publication of Futernick’s new book of short stories and photographs, 13 Presidents, which features each President from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush as a protagonist. Weaving together fact and fiction, Futernick forms a vision of America that is both invented and true.

Marisa Futernick is a London-based American artist who recently drove across the U.S. to visit all thirteen of the nation’s Presidential libraries as research for 13 Presidents. A screening of photographs from the publication will accompany the talk.

13 Presidents is published in September 2016 by Slimvolume, London. www.slimvolume.org

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. IMPORTANT NOTE on access to 51 Gordon Square: in order to secure the smooth delivery of the lectures or presentations, and for ease of logistics, access may be restricted after the start of the event.
